baton like figure - weight at (0,A) that has a mass M, second weight at origin (0,0) with weight 2M. These are the end points of the baton and that is it for this baton weight/location. The 2M weight has a velocity V towards the positive x axis. The goal is to locate the M mass with respect to time T.

2. Relevant equations

not sure....

3. The attempt at a solution

not sure...i think it spins in one spot... the top mass might have a velocity twice as fast...but not sure about this either...since no force then the center of mass located at (0,a/3) will stay there..but thats all i have...
